Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
I could not find any 18.25 ounce box of cake mix in the store. The Duncan Hines Devils' Food cake mix I used contains 16.5 ozs. So, should I reduce the amounts of sour cream, eggs, pudding, chocolate chips, etc? and if so how much reduced. Also, should one follow the directions on the box of cake mix, blending 2 minutes on medium as directed on box, or just mix as recommended in the instructions and don't worry about the 2 minute mixing. More specific recipe instruction should be provided.

My Kentucky Derby Dessert

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
First thing I noticed when fixed as directed is entire pie batter will not fit into deep dish pie shell. No matter, I discarded what would not fit to edges of crust. Now during the baking process much of the pie filling is oozing out and spilling over the edges of the crust. The only change I made to the recipe was using what one reviewer suggested - browned butter instead of corn oil. I will come back later and review for taste. But I knew when I saw the ingredients, it was probably not going to fit into a 9 inch deep dish pie shell. Also the other reviewers here (at least 2) did not state they followed the recipe here ... only comments like "I've used this recipe for years" - the exact one? And "yummy, give me another piece" - did they fix it as directed or just looking at the picture? As I said, I will come back later and rate for taste but based on what's oozing over the edges, I should have discarded even more filling than I did to adjust to the deep dish pastry shell.
